ATP Tour History
The Association of Tennis Professionals (ATP) is the governing body of men’s professional tennis that was formed in September 1972 by Donald Dell, Jack Kramer, and Cliff Drysdale with Drysdale becoming the first President. The ATP was designed to defend the interests of professional tennis players and a continuation of tour competitions known as Grand Prix tennis tournaments and World Championship Tennis (WCT)..
In May 1973 Yugoslavia tennis player Nikola Pilić was suspended for a month by the International Lawn Tennis Federation (ILTF) which meant he would not be allowed to play at Wimbledon. The ATP threatened a boycott, with 81 top players including reigning champion Stan Smith and 13 of the 16 men's seeds not competing at the 1973 Wimbledon Championships.
From 1974 to 1989 the men’s tennis circuit was managed by the Men's International Professional Tennis Council (MIPTC), consisting of representatives from the International Tennis Federation (ITF), the ATP and tournament directors from around the world.
In 1988 there was a player mutiny in the men’s game due to a lack of player representation in the MIPTC. This dissatisfaction resulted in the ATP announcing their withdrawal from the MIPTC and creating their own tour from 1990 onwards. The ATP successfully petitioned the MIPTC to introduce a drug testing rule which made tennis the first professional sport to institute a drug-testing program.
In 2009 the ATP altered the ATP Tour and renamed it the ATP World Tour which consisted of ATP World Tour Masters 1000, ATP World Tour 500 and ATP World Tour 250 tier tournaments. The Tennis Masters Series tournaments became the Masters 1000 level. ATP International Series Gold and ATP International Series events became ATP 500 level and 250 level events respectively.
There were plans to abolish Monte Carlo and Hamburg as Masters Series events which led to protests from players and tournament organisers. Hamburg and Monte Carlo filed lawsuits against the ATP which saw Monte Carlo remain a Masters 1000 tournament. Hamburg became a 500 level event, didn’t accept the decision but had no choice after losing another law suit.
The ATP Tour became the ATP World Tour in 2009 before reverting to the ATP Tour in 2019.
